Anyone driving from New Jersey to New York may want to consider taking the Lincoln or Holland Tunnels—because there's a hole in the upper roadway of the George Washington Bridge.

The Port Authority has closed two of the four upper level eastbound lanes, plus a lower level lane for repair work. WCBS 2 reports, "Footage from the scene showed workers standing above what appears to be exposed metal from below the roadway at the site of the gap. Emergency repair work is under way."

The Port Authority adds, "The closures are expected to last until tomorrow morning. The lanes will not impact commuters traveling from New York to New Jersey tonight. Motorists traveling eastbound to New York should consider alternate routes such as the Lincoln or Holland Tunnel, or use the lower level of the George Washington Bridge. Significant delays are expected."
